Taking advantaging of an image game, Dean, Guo, Ruey-Shan let students to understand that there’s a learning inertia where experiences form an inertial thinking which influences the judgment made by our brain. Most of the time, we have no idea what we have because something hides in the subconscious mind; consequently, drawing them into awareness is the key to exploit the potentiality when needed. The effect can’t be underestimated that discovering what used to be not known but, in fact, subconsciously known by yourself. Management programs won’t be the most unforgettable learning chances, unless it helps you reflecting on and understanding those experiences you had in the past. If this objective can be achieved, you’ll be capable of handling tough issues, encountering in the further with experiences and reflection, a knowledge which won’t fade away.
